What’s in the basket
1 bag tomatillo
1 bag kale
A few garlic
1 head green cabbage
1 bag spearmint
1 bag turnips
1 pint red raspberries
1 skull cap puff ball
1 bag plums
Few sweet corn
Please remember to wash all the veggies as I only field wash them to knock most of the dirt off. Berries and other typical fruits are harvested in the middle of the day to insure dryness. Wash these just before use to prevent spoiling.
The greens are harvested in the morning at the peak of cellular integrity (turgor pressure). Place these in your refrigerator to keep them crisp.
What to do with some of what you have in the basket.
Turnips are great in soups or baked with potatoes.
The plums were brought to me by my uncle. Use them soon because they go bad quickly (no co2 treatment to make them keep).
